It's one thing to hang pictures of yourself at your house; it's a whole other thing to commission strange portraits of yourself alongside angels, horses, and fairies. That is, unless you're Michael Jackson. 

Months before Jackson's death, several pieces of art featuring the King of Pop in an almost god-like light were unveiled at a private auction. These pieces of art were created by a variety of artists, all hired in secret to produce huge – and often strange – pictures. The secret Michael Jackson portrait collection – as the images have become known – is a stunning look into how the King of Pop saw himself. It's estimated he spent millions of dollars on the paintings. To be honest, it's not hard to see how they cost so much. These elaborate, and often large, paintings were truly pieces of art.
